Collaboration, Networking and Knowledge Sharing Services


Oyogi (via ehub), Siphs (for life sciences) and Yedda (via TechCrunch) ....

These services have some features that some of you may remember if you were using using Engineering Information Village in 1995. I believe enabling knowledge sharing and collaboration within engineers was one of the goals behind the Engineering Village concept, but I think Ei team was ahead of their time beacuse they did not have these easy tools to really execute on the concept. With the success of Connotea and ease of access to information globaly, I bet we will see some interesting applications in our space that will enable the scientists and the engineers to easily share and collaborate their knowledge. It will be interesting to see what Google Scholar team is going to do with collaboration.

Wow. It has been a long time since I've seen that graphic. I agree with your comments on what the Ei team was attempting to do some 11 years ago - Randy

Rafael,

This sounds interesting... the Engineering Information Vilage link is no longer active. Think you can share a bit about what they were doing at the time, and what can we learn from them today?

Thanks,

Yaniv
